    Should we give Cano a 10 year deal?

    according to Joel Sherman, Cano/Boras wants a 10 year deal at top market value, likely meaning 20+ million a season....

    http://www.nypost.com/p/sports/yanke...uS0CYNHBrc5y6L

    would you do it?

    I honestly think I would just pick up his 2013 option and trade him at the deadline rather than get hooked into another A-Rod type deal

    Thoughts?

    Absolutely not.

    I would prefer that the Yankees get rid of their ridiculous "no extension during a contract" policy & work with Cano/Boras to get a deal done. However, if it's between 10 year deal & a trade...then trade him. Let a terrible contract be someone else's problem for once.

    After Alex, Jeter, Sabathia ... This organization showed the Baseball World they can be bullied into big contacts.

    Henceforth, whenever this team shows ANY type of interest in premium talent, we will pay DEARLY for said talent.

    Its even worse when Its home grown talent, cause the kids feeling entitled.

    No one thinks Cano is as good as Cano does.
    ? Can switching to Geico really save you 15 % or more on car insurance ? ? Does the postman always ring twice ?

    Cano is elite & among the best players in baseball. While I know that you're saying "Cano thinks he's a better talent than others do", it still makes no sense. I don't think there is anyone out there that doesn't think he's among the best in baseball.

    He'll be one year younger than A-Rod was after 2007.

    Bleh. They'll probably cave and give him one anyway.

    not unless that 200m also includes a chemist and untraceable roids
    always reasonable

    For every smile, $5Million is owed back to the Yankees.

    Re: Should we give Cano a 10 year deal?

    8 year 160m with some incentives sounds about right.

    I could live with 180/10 too with incentives to get it to 200/10

    There is just no reason for Cano to get less than 20 a year or at least 7 years. So I think this is pretty much what our choices are.

    Re: Should we give Cano a 10 year deal?

    NO, NO, unequivical NO

    I want absolutely no part of long-term (>5 year) contracts for superstars entering their 30's. They simply do not work after the first few years.

    Cano will be 30 in two days. He will be 31 when he hits free agency. We have benefited from his prime years, but I fear that he will soon start on the downside of his career.

    Cano deserves a decent contract, but if he wants $20+M for ten years, then I say adios amigo.

    BTW - I have already proposed the idea of trading him for prospects in another thread and I stand by that idea. We have Corbin Joseph ready in AAA to move up to the majors - trade Robby and get cost controlled players in return.

    Isn't it amazing that Jeter's 10 was a bargain.

    No, not a chance. We should trade him for Prospects. I really don't want to give out any 10 year deals. We could get quite a few prospects for Cano and or Grandy. I think that's what we should do. Maybe have Corban Joseph at second.

    Jeter signed his 10-year contract at the age of 27. Cano would be 31 when he signed such a deal.

    Re: Should we give Cano a 10 year deal?

    I love Cano, and I think he's worth a mega-deal, but to me ten years is WAY too much. I don't see how in a post-steroid era players should be getting even 7 years, let alone 10. That said, I'd hope he re-ups at 7/$150MM or so. I don't see how the Yanks can let him go unless he goes beyond the bounds of insano.

    Re: Should we give Cano a 10 year deal?

    Cano isn't nearly as good a player as Arod was, his offense is more of a risk to decline faster because he's not a patient hitter, and he plays a position that players have historically aged poorly at. Sign me up!

    edit: I don't want the team to trade him, though. He's by far their best player and they just won 95 games; they should be doing their best to compete next year.

    Agree on all points.
    David Ortiz tested positive for performance enhancing drugs in 2003.

    Re: Should we give Cano a 10 year deal?

    Oh Lord, NO. Never.

    I see him as a 4-5 year deal and 7 at the MOST. They can still overpay for 7 and I'd be okay with that. The first 4 years are still at his premium with his regression (approximately) being the last three years.

    Re: Should we give Cano a 10 year deal?

    I'd much rather see them overpay in dollars instead of years.

    I agree with this. Cano is a great player despite his recent performance, and I am not ready to see him leave New York. But I think the Yankees, and the rest of the majors have witnessed the downside of 10 year contracts. I frankly don't think any team that can afford Cano would be ready to sign a 10 year contract with him, so we should negotiate a shorter deal with a higher amount if necessary.

    Re: Should we give Cano a 10 year deal?

    Hypothetically, something like $160-200m for 5-6 years?

    Better than 10.

    Cano is not worth $32 - $33 million a year.

    I would go with 5 years/$125M max. Give him vesting years for 6 & 7 perhaps. Nothing longer.

    Those prospects better be developed by the time they get here or forget it. If they trade Cano, it better include major league ready talent.

    Re: Should we give Cano a 10 year deal?

    Hell no. We have already benefited from his best years and he has at best 3-4 left in him before it's all downhill from there. If he wants ten, trade him for the best you can get. If he is willing to take a 5, max 6 year deal then the Yanks should talk serious with him and try to hash it out. But he has Boras as an agent, so I expect crazy numbers and years...please stop making this jakass agent seem like some genius. Learn from your mistakes.
